On 6-7-18 at approximately 1711 hours officers responded to a local hospital where they met with a male victim who stated he was the victim of a home invasion.
The victim stated he was home alone at 1221 12th St when two subjects entered his home and began beating him with a handgun. Due to a language barrier the victim was unable to understand the suspects’ demands.
One suspect pointed a handgun at the victim at which point he pushed the gun away and shot was fired. The suspects then fled the residence on foot at which time the victim called for help. The victim was not struck by gunfire and his injuries were non life-threatening.
